Woyww #154 a new monkey

Yay it's Wednesday, the time to share what is on work desks all around the world. Started by Julia over at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com.

This was my desk this morning when Smallest decided he wanted to do some crafting
He is decorating Easter hangings! He started them at Easter and then forgot about them, I put them away, he remembered he hadn't finished so I had to find them! He made a lovely job.
......and this is my desk after some work. A pile of books and magazines, an old photo of me and my mum (I was showing Smallest), my sewing basket and Huffle's Skinky (sock monkey)........,,,,,,
Huffle bought me this book for Mothers Day. I love it. I have made a Dollar Bill Vikings Helmet and a leaping leopard frog. It really leaps too! What will I make next?
Two more socks ready to make another sock monkey for Small, he chose his own socks to use, not a pair but they kind of go, and my new wool and crochet hook ready for Annaboo's CAL (Crochet a long).

This is the sock monkey I am making for Smallest. He chose the socks and the buttons and has already named him Skunky and he loves him so!

Grab yourself a cup of tea/coffee and go and see what you can find on other people's desk. It may take a while though, there are a lot out there.

Lots of exciting things going on here this week - I've been meaning to make sock toys with my lower primary children for ages - looks like fun!

I just love it when the children want to craft as well. Mine still does and she is nearly 18. Love the sock monkey in the making.

Happy crafting

These sock monkeys are darling and not at all creepy like those other sock monkeys. That is so sweet that the kiddo picked out his own socks and wants to craft. I love the enthusiasm of children and the fact that they won't be bothered that it isn't Easter time-let's color those eggs anyway!

Not surprised that the sock monkey is already loved, he looks great! Lovely colour of the CAl wool, what will it all become?
